Explorer Folder Tree, scroll correction?

Hi everyone!

I remember in Windows Explorer on Windows XP that when you opened a folder by double clicking it then that folder would move to the top of the folder tree and then expand revealing it's sub-folders.

How can we get this behavior in Windows 7

Here is xp and win 7. They both reveal subfolders at top. Are you talking about something else?

Whoops, sorry for the miscommunication

I am meaning in the left pane while you are exploring a folder with lots of sub-folders such as the windows folder. Then when you click on it, it moves to the top and then expands it's subfolders

I don't get it. When i click on the arrow next to "windows" it goes to the top:

one more click on the "windows" icon I have the subfolders opened on the right pane:

I apologize if I misunderstand something, English is not my native language.

Neither. Looked up Macedonian phrases. Much better than translators.

@Everyone: if this hasn't happened to you then I am envious but this seems to be happening randomly as no matter what I do I can't seem to get it to do it on purpose in any kind of way that we can track

I have also noticed many other quite issitating things with explorer such as when I click on a file in a folder and then double click on another file in the same folder ( or even elsewhere )
then
explorer will highlight that file i clicked on --but-- open the last file I had clicked @_# @_#

This behavior happens even when copying files; it will sometimes copy a file i had momements earlier clicked on regardless of the fact that I had clicked on a different file @_#


*also* <- if anyone knows a solution for this off-topic issue here; please point me in that direction, thank you
Internet Explorer 8 also has a very annoying bug in it in HTML textarea boxes when typing in text passed the visible area and then pasting into it; the textbox will scroll up before even the place where I pasted my text into @_#


These two issues is as though the explorer.exe and iexplore.exe had a couple minor bugs in them much like issues you get with c++ pointer references...

I desprately hope the upcoming Win7 SP1 will solve these ;(
